I have these itchy sores that appear on my forearms, hands, fingers, and legs. they seem to all start a little differently--some start by itching and then turn into a regular looking blister, dry out and itch like crazy but never quite heal and the process starts all over again. others start as a raised, itchy small area sometime with what appears to be a whitehead in the middle, but when i scratch it, because they itch like mad, they bleed. No puss or anything and then after a week or so, turn into like a hole in my skin which again itches like mad and never goes away. it will develop a scab, but that is as close to healing as it gets and then it will, out of the blue, start itching again and i will scratch off the tiny scab and then it bleeds like crazy and itches at the same time--just like when it started. I am getting more and more of these and my doctor assures me that it isn't cancer. He wants to send me to a dermatologist and I think I"m gonna go. Does anyone else have this kind of skin problem and if you do, do you know what it is so that I have some idea what I am dealing with as it takes weeks to get in to a specialist--even with a doctors referral!!!
